The battle between the eyes and the stomach is one we’re more than familiar with and if, like us, your eyes always win out then you should be pretty damn excited right now.
We dusted off our stretchy pants and made it our mission to track down the best of the best all you can eat menus in Sydney. And let us tell you, it was a tough job.
Here are the best all you can eat restaurants in Sydney.
Let’s face it, when it comes to cooking, it’s best done by someone else. Luckily for us, Churrasco is serving up the goods every night of the week with an all you can eat fill of Brazilian BBQ. This is the type of feast that requires nothing more than kicking back and relaxing while you enjoy an endless amount of smoked and barbequed meats, grilled vege, fresh salads and antipasto items served right to and your hungry belly at your table. It won’t stop until you say so, which means you can literally eat until bursting.
When: Daily, from 6pm
Cost: $43 pp
Kansai Japanese Restaurant
Nobody understands the midweek pig out feels quite like Kansai. That’s why they’re serving up an all you can eat sushi and sashimi (!!) menu covering the mildly ravenous to could-literally-eat-my-own-arm hunger levels. Munch your way through all of the salmon nigiri, prawn tempura hand rolls, teriyaki salmon salad and gyoza you can handle or upgrade to the deluxe feast. This bad boy includes hot pots and fresh sashimi for a feast that will literally have you rolling home.
When: Monday – Saturday, from 5pm
Cost: $32 – $42
Salt Meats Cheese
Salts Meats Cheese is a good option any night of the week but when it involves all you can eat pizza, Mondays are the obvious choice. Curing your Mondayitis once slice at a time, you can (literally) stuff yourself with as much pizza as you can fit in. The best part is this carby, cheesy feast won’t break the bank—just your diet, but we promise it’ll be worth it (#sorrynotsorry).
When: Mondays, from 5pm
Cost: $20 pp
Because all the best foods in life involve getting messy, Hotel William’s all you can eat wings night might just be the best thing ever. Serving endless amounts of wings doused in smoky BBQ and hot sauce all day long, grabbing a bib and heading down for a cheeky feast is almost impossible to say no to. And why would you, when it’ll cost less than your train ride home (well, basically)?
Cost: $12 pp
Anything involving the word ‘unlimited’ is a yes from us. But when that beautiful word is closely followed by the words ‘mussels’ and ‘frites’ we just can’t even deal. Seriously, ditch the diet and get down to Ananas every single Monday for allllllll the mussels mariniere. Did we mention it also comes with bottomless pomme frites? We just thought it was worth mentioning twice TBH. Kicking off the week in any other way would just be rude.
Cost: $30 pp
With summer just around the corner, Platia Greek's all you can eat Greek meze menu says “I like to eat (a lot) but also I care about my summer bod”. The spread includes a variety of hot and cold platters and they change them up every few weeks which just means you can (and should) go back every single week and never get bored.
When: Every Monday, from 5.30pm
Cost: $29 pp
When it comes to cheese, too much is (literally) never enough. And in this case, Tuesdays spent at Loluk Bistro are totes worth ditching every prior life commitment for. This Provençale bistro throws a raclette night weekly and it involves all the raclette (obvs), charcuterie and profiteroles you can get your hungry little mitts on.
When: Every Tuesday, from 6pm – 10pm
Cost: $49 pp
Wednesdays are made for midweek treats and a bottomless dumpling menu is our fave treat in Sydney. We consider this menu at Daniel San a challenge—one that’s best accomplished with plenty of mates (and loose clothing) because eating your body weight in dumplings is mandatory.
When: Every Wednesday, from 5pm
Cost: $24.50 pp
There isn’t an occasion where wings aren’t delicious and when they’re sitting pretty on an all you can eat menu, well, they’re even better. TBH, we’d happily eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every Wednesday, The Forresters is serving up wings, wings and more wings for only $15 a head so ditch your dinner plans and get there STAT (you know, if it’s Thursday).
When: Thursdays, from 4pm
Cost: $15 pp
El Camino Cantina
TGIF is best celebrated with an endless amount of tacos and El Camino Cantina have both of these things (and LOTS of it). You’ll need to bring your feasting A game for this one if you have any chance of eating your way through starters like nachos and guac before tucking into chef's selection of tacos and finishing with churros dipped in a salted caramel sauce. Taco ‘bout a delicious offer.
When: Every Friday
Cost: $52 pp
Everyone knows that endless carbs = happiness. Therefore, the all you can eat pizza and pasta menu at Pizza Autentico automatically makes this spot one of our faves for a slice (or 10) of the good stuff. With a whopping selection of 30 pizzas and 10 pastas to choose from, just sit back and stuff yourself as you’re delivered endless carbs for an hour and a half of pure foodie heaven.
When: Every Friday, from 12pm
Cost: $25 pp
It’s slim pickings on the weekend and were pretty sure that’s because we’re all out trawling for the cheap things. Well, our little secret is The Wanderer. They’re slinging all the wings you can handle and it’s a total no brainer for those weekend cheap eats. The mountain of sticky wings is almost enough to make you forget your hangover and it’s all available for a measly 15 bucks.
On a more relaxing note, here are the best spots in Sydney to catch the sunrise.
